for the city and county of san francisco. i have spent many years prosecuting child abuse cases in san francisco of all kinds. i am here to tell you district attorney george gaston is strongly committed to this opening. we have fought years for something like this. child abuse cases present unique and difficult challenges. their needs are immense and the agencies that work on this and experts from child protective services to the police to the da's office to doctors and psychologists. the benefits of having all of those people in one place for the children who is a victim of abuse or witnessed traumatic incidents is immeasurable. for them to be able to go to one spot with their family and receive services and support and placement all in one place, and in a building that has excellent public transportation that families can get to easily that is known throughout the city this particular location. the benefit also runs through the experts to have all of us in one place to talk to each other, to talk about cases, to plan a strategy, to try to make sure not only that child but othe
a third in san francisco and how many of you have visited -- on the east bay yeah, another about a third. so that is actually one of the points that i'll be making today basically, the two things i want you to walk out remembering today is that oakland is on the rise and it's growing mommentum and at this point in history, it's the rural city of business opportunities and i'm going go over just a few of those points. mary asked us to pick an hour and i love mary and she is this charge of the local papers and trends and i'm sure most of you do. oakland is a city that is definitely on the rise and has stabilizessed a really strong financial base. probably in the strongest position that we have been in in a decade, and that is due to my new management leadership team and i want to give a shout out to santa ana city mr. and pat johnson who's the assistant to the managerial financeses and i'm going to intros them a little later. we have basically and you nerve can tell because of the surprises from the other government and is the feds and the elimination of redevelopment and et cetera but
to undercut the folks in san francisco that would sign up to our program? >> well, i would expect that pg and e will be marketing the program throughout their service territory, once it's authorized, i would expect that from the numbers they're pretbacker projecting, it's from throughout those 30 thousand accounts are throughout their service territory, since we would be marketing and educating folks about renewable energy offerings, our market may be more ready to consider that sort of option and i would expect that pg and e will be able to under the code of conduct, we are required to provide rate comparisons that we work on together with pg and e, our program offering versus theirs and i would expect the california puc would require us to show the green e option in that comparison, so we would be sort of more actively engaged with pg and e customers in san francisco as would pg and e as perhaps to their other territories. >> our customers automatically enroll in the green e program? >> no, customers would need to elect, sign up for that program, and that's why i think pg and e is proje
in the bay. and other than san francisco, people didn't build dense development on their water. alamada, marin, maybe a couple, but the areas. but. the bulk of their development is not on the water front. i look there, i don't see one person that lives anywhere near fill, i know where every one of you live. the planning department staff they may have some people that live on the fill, over near the fill and they are directly affected by it. but, i really don't know. i know that people died on the fill in (inaudible). the sexy press coverage was done of the marina because they were upper market class people, south of market people died too, and there was no coverage. (inaudible) it was not even a footnote that there were deaths in the south of market. and they were on fill, you have (inaudible) a lot of designs on for expanded development. where is the discussion? i think that john ebelin was absolutely right in what he asked for, i am uping the anty, i want to have a real discussion on the policy of how the commission is going to deal with (inaudible) ross and bay fill and the developme
might also see flight delays of up to 90 minutes into major cities like san francisco but again, that's at least not the only impact you might see before that is on an extremely busy day at the airport..often times tsa or customs might add additional personnel when they know there will be an unusually high number of passengers. but with sequestration there will be no overtime. and that means no additional workers femmehappening right now. a 'first friday' event in oakland. venomlast month, a shooting broke out after the 'first friday' event ended. and one man was killed. been made. and the event iskron 4's j.r. stone joins us if live from oakland. officers with the santa cruz police department were back on duty today. following the murder of two of their own. on tuesday, detective sgt. loran "butch" baker and detective elizabeth butler were gunned down by jeremy goulet. the officers were investigating a misdemeanor branci-forte avenue. when the suspect opened fire, killing the two officers. goulet had a long history of sex- related assaults and arrests. goulet was later shot and kille
coming to san francisco since may for the planning efforts and i got to participate in the com drill with 6 marines and we were dispersed from all 3 different sites. >> good morning, everybody, my name is michelle geddis, i'm with the san francisco department of emergency management, i'm responsible for the project management ofrs and one of our major programs is the interoperatability program. so i was more than delighted to be part of this com exercise, i was able to be an evaluator at the ocean beach location and we have a lot of lessons learned to talk about. thanks. >> one of the challenges that we have in civilian and also you as military is that common operating picture. how do we make sure that all of our resources in the field, back in the command post, have the same operating picture and we can ensure that we have an unity of effort of everyone. and with the command and control exercise that we started with, this was one great opportunity for the military and the civilian groups to work together. so i'd like to hear from our c2 exercise participants how that went. colone
was going to be in operation in san francisco after an ert quake. that probably is not going to happen. it's a little bit different having several blocks in your population out of water versus out of electricity or gas or cell phone service. it's a little bit different level of emergency. after an earthquake what we're designing for is to have the high level fire system more or less immediately. there may be homes, individual service connections, which could be out of water for quite some time and that's where my utility has to interface with other departments to make sure we're getting water to people through humanitarian stations, red cross, mutual aid is a huge part of this with our federal and state partners. but those hand off points after a major event and educating ourselves what we're doing and not doing is a big part of the life line process that naomi is running and it's been very, very helpful. >> thank you. and mr. angelus. >> in terms of standards, similar to pg&e we have established our own internal standards on how resilient our network is. it's two hour quality of servi
monroe is the president of and we celebrated several former san francisco officers and one that worked in this parish for the role in the civil rights advocates in the 60s and 70s raising the rights of the officers. and you probably know that san francisco is the most diverse police department in the country and it is because of the work of these men who received the awards and put in the hall of fame because their hard work that we have the police department that we have today that was a great ceremony and that is all that i have to report and commissioners, anything to report? >> i would like to report that the coffee was delicious. i am sorry guys. >> it has been a long day. >> i wanted to report that it was a fantastic promotion ceremony, some great family and i just wanted to echo the points that the deputy chief made is that our job is to be critical and hold the police officers accountable every day and we do that well in san francisco and it is also nice to celebrate some people who worked really hard to become leaders in the department at a time when there is so much transitio
location of charles char scrab and a broken firm and happens to be a san francisco firm and with chase moving in there are 22 signs and in every column space there is one sign so as the arcade goes on you have a sign for column spacing and then on the inside between lit signage on the store front you have blue atm's and everything else which comes through it. i would like the department to put on things to look at. it's not what the code prescribes. last i heard of a wonderful story and veteran's common and the mission street building which is the jeweled building with the roof top garden bar was adapted to accept about 20 -- i'm want sure on the number, veteran vouchers of home units negotiated by former supervisor dufty and i think that is a wonderful and positive thing to share with each other. it's described in the paper today if anyone wants more detail on that. >> thank you. commissioner antonini. >> thank you. i read in interest about the story i think the chairperson of yahoo that ask employees not work from home anywhere and in the future go to their campus to work, and
and if we had an arena decent for presentation san francisco would be the first site but that doesn't mean this has to be the only site in san francisco but it's the best site because it satisfies so many things being so close to accessibility from cal train, from bart, from muni, from a lot of different public transportation and also very walkable. it also impresses me after giant games the number of people on the street walking up to market street or into the heart of san francisco and everyone had horror stories about how bad it would be and i don't think i ever had a problem coming or going to a giant games whether i walked or drive or public transportation. i usually don't drive and if i do i park a wayings away and i think this makes sense. somebody brought up the question about maritime uses and as was pointed out in the presentation there is the idea of kayak access and some ferry terminal or some terminal is planned as part of the project. fishing will be available. there will be greater access to the water. there is none now. you can walk out there and look out into the wate

, february 19th, we were honored to be part of an announcement made by the san francisco giants, which was announcing that anchor brewing company is planning to move its or expand its operations to pier 48 as part of the mission rock development project. this is a huge for the dianth and for the port. it represents a coming around or modernizing of an existing pier for what would have been a historic use and is still a very modern use. and so we are very grateful to the giants for finding such a terrific and local partner and we are looking forward to welcoming them after you get your various approvals hopefully as early as 2014. and that was wonderful news and we commend you for that and thank you for including all of us at the port of the event. our own sadness for the day was that it was not a post 5:00 event, so that we could all enjoy the new product that will be moving to the water front, but i assume that there will be time for that. just another ribbon cutting. >> okay. next what i would like to mention is we are going to have a street closure this friday night beginning at 10
time when there was the common sense san francisco which was pg and e using a different name at the time they were allowed to do this kind of stuff, we worked with the puc and the lafco staff put out a spreadsheet, it doesn't cost any money because i think a lot of the supervisors in their news letters put links to this information, so we have facebook, we have e-mail list, we have a lot of ways we can get has information out that won't necessarily cost any money right now is we're not spending the money we need for later on but we can still get that information out there, so what is reality of the program and using some of the things that those mailers are saying which is completely inaccurate would be a way to start that. >> and one thing we could say is in addition to any kind of like a mailer or mailing that has some information about this, i would also encourage puc, lafco staff to go into the community and there are probably -- i mean, there is dozens, each one of us on the board of supervisors have dozens of organizations and merchant groups, community groups that we c

for arriving flights into san francisco right now. >> here is spencer christian. >> hard to believe but take a look at live doppler 7. sunny skies now looking at western sky from our east bay hills camera. beautiful afternoon around the bay area, temperatures highs, so far, i should say 74 degrees in santa rosa and 74 in oakland. 71 near san francisco. a clear ocean beach and readings right now 71 degrees in oakland. on we go mainly cloudy skies and take a look at readings, low 70s around the bay area. so it's just been mild, one of the mildest days of the year so far. clear and mild, mostly cloudy skies in early morning. still mild tomorrow before getting the cool down coming our way next week. larry and carolyn? >> firefighters have maitd progress against this wildfire that we're showing you live on the news. it's about 40% contained now. hot dry winds could cause hot spots to clear again. >> st. mayor ease basketball coach responded to harsh sanction that's could impact his program for years still to come these mostly involve questionable recruiting efforts. >> i take full responsibility.
does it fit in with what we're doing in san francisco and the bay area with medical planning. so yesterday we had an opportunity to go out and see a shock trauma platoon set up on ocean beach, had them running demonstrations and asking questions of the doctors and nurses there. we also saw a landing craft on the beach. yes, it can bring a tractor, it can bring personnel, it can also evacuate patients. it can also bring resources that we otherwise wouldn't be able to get into the city. general spies has said it many times, they have the ability to go around, over, i think through was one of those as well, any of the obstacles we find in our way. that's a resource we in san francisco really have to capitalize on. as i look at all these things, frankly i just was talking to somebody this morning, this is like the toy store of resources for me. when you sit on this ship, you look around, yes, it's a ship, it carries helicopters. it is so much more than that. it's a platform that does so many things. it's like your i phone. you ask it what you want it to do and there's probabl
and deploying inside our country. so, this is an area where opportunities like san francisco fleet week will allow us for, and i believe at some point really incorporate this in some internal doctrine that will benefit us in the event that this is a requirement inside the u.s. >> thank you. this morning secretary schultz asked one of the panels that was involved in communications and command and control about in this age of information, real-time information, how you're hit with a sea of information and how do you deal with that. something as senior leaders all of you have dealt with. and i believe admiral zukunft used the term dealing with reality tv. so, until you get that unity of effort and get into an up tempo, how do you as a senior leader deal with that sea of information coming at you that's all over cnn and the cable as you look at deploying your forces? >> i'll take that one again. and i'll go back to my experience during the gulf oil spill. and we lost public trust very early on because we would quote numbers and then the numbers would change and then the more they changed, a
breaking this study down to multiple categories to try to find similar things with san francisco, so we're looking at other locations that have large populations that are about the city and county, other places in the country, there are places like arlington, virginia, colorado, we're looking how they replace their positions in the county there. we're also going to be looking at the top 10 cities across the nation to see -- that have independently elected mayors to see how they replace position ins the top 10 cities, we're going to look in california, the law dictates how most places do the replacements unless you're a chartered city like san francisco, you can have a different set of rules so we're going to look at all of those locations as well, and determine what is everyone else's practices and present that in a report. my hope is we'll have a draft available for the march meeting so people can think about what it is, i don't have much more detail than that because we haven't had a chance to analyze all the data that's been collected so far. >> i think what's good to look at
of you know i had a long association with san francisco's waterfront and fisherman's wharf in particular and i am happy to hear that fisherman's wharf will not be duplicated. fisherman's wharf as you know is the number two destination next to disneyland in california and we seem to do a good job at making the people happy and generating tax dollars and the arena will bring in new tax dollars from a new sector of san francisco and entertaining folks of san francisco. in regard to the cruise ship -- i assume they're celebratory ships or back up cruise ship capacity and for fleet week? >> yeah, we are currently planning that this berth could accommodate fleet week and other ships. the eastern edge of this pier as you probably know commissioner from your time on the port commission has an advantage in it doesn't require as much consistent dredging and lower cost from a operational standpoint and options like that and one of the reasons we tried to make it work under the plan. >> okay. i imagine the port is negotiating with you about the number of days, maximum, minimum? >> yes. we're in
points on that. the first is that all disasters are local. the folks here in san francisco are going to be in charge from the minute the disaster happens and i think that that's really critical to understand. the local authorities evaluate the situation on the ground and execute what locally is available, then they evaluate shortfalls and what they have and then generate those requirements up through that defined chain of command, as i mentioned earlier. then once those agencies determine what those requirements are, they are given back to the city who employs those as they think they need to be deployed because, again, they are the eyes and understand the local situation. i think going through this that the navy and the marine corps, we're used to being in charge whenever we show up and we're not going to be in this situation. i think it's important for us to understand that and we do and i think we, if we were employed in this certainly would understand that particular chain of command and would be able to fit right in and execute as required by the local situation. >> let me rei
on the national and local fronts. joining me on the news panel are carolyn said, "san francisco chronicle" reporter. jolie o'dell, venturebeat reporter. and andrew ross, "san francisco chronicle" columnist. earlier this evening president obama signed an order triggering automatic cuts in federal spending. this is because congress and the president failed to reach a deficit reduction deal. andrew, let's begin with you. how is california affected specifically? >> of all the states, california is affected in dollar terms the most. something like $3 billion to $4 billion this year out of total, at least, of an $85 billion first-year cut. the military is taking the biggest cut. california has a major military presence. mostly in southern california, but also, of course, in northern california around sacramento, and around monterey. that's going to be hit really hard, too. $87 million worth at least of education cuts, which means secondary education, some primary education, plus head-start, plus special education, there are all sorts of cuts coming through. will it affect the overall recovery i

the projections for san francisco and how we're trying to accommodate some of that growth. as you know this was developed for a sustainable community strategy and implements these things to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. the regional projections are here. they project that the bay area which is the nine counties that touch the bay will grow by 2 million people and add 1 million jobs and housing units and that is about 2/3 of the city of san francisco -- no, more than that. that is double the size of san francisco and while they have projections by county it's clear that number is coming to the bay area and whether they will go to each county the way they project it's clear about that number is coming whether we plan for it or not. so the regional growth strategy that has been projected by a bag and amc the priority development areas which are primarily along transit facilities will absorb 80% of the housing and 66% of the jobs. the second bullet is important even with the urban centric scenario that we call it and focus the growth on the three big cities and that is 15% of the re
